Oh -- then I did not understand the documentation.

This optional value specifies a mountpoint that clients are 
automatically moved to if the source shuts down or is not streaming at 
the time a listener connects. Only one can be listed in each mount and 
should refer to another mountpoint on the same server that is streaming 
in the _same streaming format_.

I was thinking that "same streaming format" referred to 
bitrate/channels, etc. Perhaps it means mp3 or ogg.

Anyway, this is good news. Thank you.
